Colette Chretien is the designer and founder of La Fille Colette, and is based out of Boston. In her designs, Colette draws inspiration from art movements, and lately has been exploring op art. Her interest in geometric shapes, the play of intersecting lines, and the pairing of unexpected colors is evidenced in her graphic collection.

Colette has been studying fine art as well as designing dresses from a very young age. She began as a toddler, dreaming up decadent princess ball gowns rendered in crayon, and later moved on to sketch stage outfits for her childhood sartorial icons, the Spice Girls. In college, she merged fine art and fashion in much of her work. She graduated from Tufts University, and was dual-enrolled at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she was awarded a grant to paint in the French Riviera. For Colette, fashion and art have always been inextricable.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER?

I love being able to spend every day doing what I want to be doing to get me closer to my dream. It's the best feeling in the world being able to do what I love.



WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?

I feel like there's never enough time to do everything I want to get done! It's hard to juggle so many balls in the air, and the biggest challenge for me is focusing on one area of the business while not neglecting the other important aspects.



WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION?

I get really inspired by certain shapes, negative space, and unexpected color pairings. Once I arrive at a shape I like, I can design the whole collection around it. I also get a lot of ideas from art from all kinds of genres.



WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A DESIGNER?

After I made my first dress when I was a teenager, I realized how fulfilling it is to envision something and take it from idea to life. I loved the process and I loved being able to wear a one-of-a-kind dress that was a perfect representation of my personal style. After that, there was never a question of what I wanted to do.
